Review: Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2)
Cover Source:
Title: Crescendo
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Series: Hush, Hush #2
Version Reviewed: ARC, paperback

GoodReads Summary:
Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it. A mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever (if that's possible) and what's worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora's archenemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadn't been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude, Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feelings that he is hiding something.
If that weren't enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father, and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.
It had been a while since I had read Hush, Hush but it took me no time at all to get right back into the storyline and pick up where I left off. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Hush, Hush was one of the best books I read in 2011 and Crescendo was definitely not a letdown.

There were a lot of things in this book that surprised me. I tried to work out the plot as I read (like always) and found that my thoughts were a lot more complicated than the actual storyline. This worked in the authors favor this time because it left me shocked by some revelations in the end.

There were quite a few things that I didn't see coming and a lot of things that had me frustrated with the characters, but in a good way.

I finished the book pretty quickly and immediately began reading Silence, the next in the series. This is definitely a series of books that continue to hold my interest and keep me guessing. Which a really good thing.

Favorite Character: Patch.
Rating: 4 Stars.
